A travel day.
The 8:30AM ferry to Nanaimo, the 1PM ferry to Denman Island, then another to Hornby, where I visited with Margaret Pethick, who makes the crispiest cookies.
I am here to conduct research on the artist Jerry Pethick, Margaret's husband, who passed away in 2003. SFU Gallery is mounting a show of Jerry's work, drawn from the collections of island residents.
Today Margaret took me and photographer Scott Massey to the home of Bill Smith, musician and founder of Coda Magazine. Bill has two of Jerry's pieces: one is very fragile and hangs behind a door in the hall, the other above the kitchen sink.
